My Jeep is the daily driver. I have an '89 Porsche 944, that I'll never part with, for a totally different kind of fun, and my wife has an '08 VW Jetta that's the gas mileage champ in our household.

2013 Rubicon. Not a daily driver, but somehow I've managed to rack up 5K miles in 5 months. It's used to run all errands on weekends and whatnot.



2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. This is the wife's daily driver. Worse on gas mileage with the Hemi than the Rubi. She averages 13 MPG city. Just over 20 when strictly HWY on trips. The larger A/T tires don't help.



2009 Charger. My daily driver is my take home car. I think I get MAYBE 10 MPG with the Hemi. I don't really baby it .

Holy crap! Me too. With only 1,800 GXPs made, the odds of this are pretty low. My Jeep is my DD. Frankly, aside from the fact that I just wanted a Jeep, I got it so that I could garage the GXP.

Dollar,

I see you are in the Houston area too. Where were those pictures taken? Hill country? Looking for somewhere to take my new Rubi around here.

Yup. 2004 BMW 330i as a DD. The Jeep and BMW go together like PB&J. BMW during the week while I'm wearing a suit. The Jeep on the weekends while I'm wearing a swimming suit. Summer lovin'!

Yes. That was taken just north of Hondo in the Hill Country on my in-laws land.

Congrats. 27 years? I bet you had quite a range of cars. I still have a ways to go. I'm hoping maybe 8 - 10 more years.

That's what I was thinking. I see many people in vehicles that don't "baby" them when they aren't paying for the ride, upkeep, or the gas.

My DD is a '10 Jetta TDI. With a 70 mile round trip commute the fuel savings cover my Jeep payment!

With the extra insurance and registration and other nonsense to pay, I wouldn't really end up saving that much money in the long run on gas. So, I just drive my Jeep... the gas mileage really isn't that terrible, especially after I found the most gas effective way to drive to work in DC traffic.

What color is your G8?

I have a G8 GT, G8 GXP. Both are fun cars and then my daily drivers are a Silverado and a Vibe GT. Looking at an unlimited Sport S.
